While I think the tech is cool and appreciate RED pushing tech forward, compared to the iPhone X with the a11 bionic processor and the supposed snapdragon processor in the RED phone, this phone is not super special and slow in comparison and will be vastly outclassed probably before the end of this year.
RED is going up against Google, Samsung, and Apple. RED might be the leader in cinema gear but when it comes to phone tech they are going against companies that are trying to push the boundaries every year. With that, I highly doubt a new way to view footage is going to get people to switch to it. It's a novelty phone. While it might be a great phone for RED owners but for the vast population they are going to stick with their Pixel, Galaxy, or iPhone.
Yep Lee! I don't see this working out for RED unless they target their niche of RED unowners. However the problem is RED would have to have a yearly release to keep customers on their phone.
This phone claims AR/VR 3D holographic tech but iPhone is already beating everyone to consumer level AR this Fall with iOS11. In that sense this phone is already obsolete.
@Jayson yes they did say that but that was the film Industry who were fine with shooting on film. The RED One changed that. Now everything is digital. RED pushed the stagnant film industry into digital film.
The problem with the smartphone idea is this industry has already been one upping each other. The tech industry is far from stagnant compared to the film industry. New phones come out every 6 months. In order to compete and not become obsolete you have to release a phone every year and get the phones to consumers in a timely fashion. If it takes a couple months for you to get this RED phone the iPhone 8S, Galaxy S9 or Pixel 2 will be out by then.
No, you are better off getting DaVinci Resolve. It's free and unrestricted for any work. It's also way more intuitive just from my quick observation.
However, I will say the more software that students can play with the better.
IR filters are probably your first issue. Also, I don't how you're getting 6 stops when various of other tests have shown otherwise. If you are using the 4k and not the 4.6K I can see the 6 stops.
This article says 13 in prores and 14 in Raw.
Buy things one at a time and not all at once and buy what you use on a regular basis and rent what you don't.
I always tell people you really can do a lot with 1 light, reflectors and cheap foam core. If not the foam core you can buy white poster board and that works great too. The poster board especially works great for product shots because you can tear it and make small bounce points where you want more light.
Not really. The video assist can't do RAW recording or Prores XQ.
